“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Colorful Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This week, the weather’s warming up… sort of… in certain areas… for a little while. Anyway, the white of winter’s melted away, and although there are still some muddy browns, we’re seeing a lot more color outside!

… Or at least, that would be what you might think if you’re the time to seal yourself away indoors for the duration of chilly weather. In reality, there are all sorts of colors all year round!

But just in case you need a refresher on what’s out there, we have a whole crayon box full of… Continue reading

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Motivational Melodies (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Remember those New Year’s Resolutions you made? Or maybe the ones you made last year? Yeah, whatever happened to those?

Maybe you’re still chipping away at yours, in which case, congratulations! Or maybe you’ve fallen away from working towards your goal.

You longtime loyal Jammin’ with Jamie Jammers know this well, but for those of you who are new, here’s a little something about me: I’m pretty big on motivating you all to go for your dreams and do your best. And I work as hard and as often as I can to do the same in my own life.

But I know as well as anyone that it can be very difficult to get and stay motivated and to have confidence in yourself, your abilities, and that your efforts can and will pay off in some way. Sure, you can give yourself pep talks all you want, but you can start to wonder if you’re just being delusional.

But don’t despair! It’s all about taking one step at a time. And it’s much easier to take those steps if you’re feeling good. So, whether you’re trying to trick yourself into taking a chance or just wanting to laugh a little more as you confidently stride onward and upward, join us as we jam to a mix of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Friendship Follies (2019) (Part 1)”!

Hi, everyone!

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance… which, let’s be honest, gets celebrated a lot. What doesn’t get celebrated as much is friendship. So let’s do it ourselves!

Friends are special people. They aren’t tied to us by romance, and often aren’t related to us by blood, and yet, they still choose to care about us and become a part of our lives.

… But before they realize exactly what they’ve gotten themselves into, let’s delay that epiphany with a flood of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Hello Harmonies”!

Hi, everyone!

Last week, we said, “Goodbye,” to the “old year” with a series of songs saying, “Sayonara,” to habits, relationships, hometowns, old ideas, and more: some sentimental, and some hilarious.

This week, we’ll turn to the flip side of that and jam to a heaping helping of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Bye Bye Beats”!

Hi, everyone!

NO, Jammin’ with Jamie is not going anywhere! But in the new year, you might be! And before you say, “Hello!”, you often have to say, “Goodbye.” So whether you’re laughing maniacally while sprinting and screaming, “Sayonara, suckers!” or standing there awkwardly sniffing and searching for the right words, this jam session will put a smile on your face with a batch of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “April Fools’ Follies (2018)”!

Hi, everyone!

I’m sure some of you are either preparing to pull pranks, bracing yourself for incoming pranks, or both. So while you strategically plant that whoopee cushion, jam with us for some inspiration… and maybe for some caution. Sometimes, pranks are fun, but don’t let the fooling go too far.

From fooling people, to being fooled, to fooling ourselves, to having foolish ideas, I can promise you one thing: jammin’ with us this week is not a fool’s errand, as we have a whole gag bag comically overflowing with…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Cold Weather Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This time of year is a weird time for weather. It’s technically still winter, and yet, people are looking ahead to spring. And if you’re in the Chicagoland area, it’s downright confusing. One day brings torrential rain, the next brings howling wind, and the next brings torrential snow.

The clingy cold weather may be irritating for some, but remember: warm weather is just around the corner! Until then, let’s do what we can to enjoy what’s left of winter with an avalanche of…

Without any further ado, let’s dive right into our first theme since our break! I can’t think of a much better way to celebrate a comeback with a cavalcade of…
